the obama administration responsible. the money she raised recently came from $5 and $10 contributions. the money came from people who were not in her district. and her district is becoming fed up with her. host: that was michael on the republican line. the national rifle association put out a statement following the defeat of the bill. "new york times seeking a lead editorial -- broderick in albany, georgia. your thoughts? all i amirst of getting ready to graduate from political science. out of the 46 senators, two are from georgia and i plan to get on the phone and talk to them. also agun owner and i am christian. i was shocked when i was 16 years old. that if background checks were into effect back than i could have had not been shot. i'm doing what i can rallies in support to find out why the senators voted against the bill. as you know we have two senators from every state. i am just upset because background to prevent lives that were lost in the other areas -- >> as a gun owner you supported what the senate was debating yesterday? >> i felt that a background check -- they could s
about mental health i counted during the obama administration there is less than 100 prosecutions for giving fire arms to people who are mentally defective. less than 100 since he became president. that is an area where there is broad consensus. how about enforcing the current background check clock? we ask the attorney general and this administration for the prosecution's veiling background checks since he became president i don't need a lecture from him and about gun violence i watched his 16 years if you want to stop people from killing other people then deal with the mental health component and keep weapons out of the people who have no business having them but today you cannot sell a gun to a prohibited per cent without a private sale of a gun show or ephedrine licensed firearms tell me how you do in forcing the tools we give you then we will consider giving you more. lou: as a citizen i get a little nervous when i hear this president talk about liars that the nra when that represents if those of us who are interested and preserving our rights and gun owners who want to exerc
et cetera to keep your maturity short. >> i want to squeeze in a tax question. we hear that the obama administration may want to put a cap on the tax exemption. is that another reason to clean up your portfolio now rather than wait? >> well, i don't know that it's another reason to clean up your portfolio, but it's certainly something to keep on the radar screen. you know, obviously, with everything that's going on in washington, everything is on the table. and with each one that comes out, there's a proposal that there would be a 28% cap on deductions so no one would be lower than the 28% tax bracket. that means you couldn't have all tax-free income that would put you in no tax bracket. in essence, that would be a tax on municipal bonds. mayors and governors are fighting this very, very aggressively. and each time they seem to get it out of the budget proposal and then a new budget proposal comes out and it's back in. i do believe that ultimately, state and local governments will be success chl in arguing that this will drive the economy right back into the recession and actually won
, the obama administration here in the northern district of california. welcome to the stop bullying summit. i'm a federal prosecutor so it may seem odd that here we are talking about bullying and we asked all of you to be here and i want to explain the origin of that and why this happened. you people, everybody in this room, has been involved in this issue and is doing incredible work on this issue and we were so honored to be a part of it and to meet with all of you and to speak with you about it. the origin is that as the united states attorney, the administration wants me, wants all the united states attorneys, to go out into the community. it's actually a very different role for the united states attorney is envisioned by this administration. this administration, the president, attorney general holder, they want the u.s. attorneys to go out into the attorney to talk to the communities in our district to understand what the issues are and challenges are and to do what we can to help, to convene meetings, to do whatever we can to help on behalf of the administration. and as part of tha

know the obama administration has been briefed on what has taken place here in west, texas. they are aware of the situation and monitoring the situation. the human toll, early estimates are that hundreds have been injured. officials are confirming that there are fatalities. however, they have not given a number of fatalities at this time. as charles hadlock just reported, this is a small town so they would not be equipped to handle the number of injured themselves. we have reports that a number of people have gone to waco, texas. they are reporting they are treating a number of burn injuries, which would be consistent with the nature of this kind of explosion. in terms of some other effects of this devastating blast, officials have closed i-35. that is the main interstate into and out of west, texas. they have also issued a no-fly zone of a three-mile radius around that area. the concern is of a secondary explosion taking place, which of course could affect aircraft. there are also concerns about toxic fumes. parts of the area have been evacuated for those same reasons. the
of legalization and the obama administration's response to substance abuse. gil kerlikowske was the featured speaker at the national press club. this is 50 minutes. >> well, good afternoon, everybody. it's a great pleasure and honor to be with all of you. first, let me thank so many people for being here today. and thank you for that wonderful introduction and the information, and i'm so glad you had a chance to spend some time with general dean who's somebody i'm going to talk about a lot in a few minutes along with a couple other people up here, also, that i've been so impressed with. the drug policy issue, the drug policy problems are really complex, and they're really difficult, and that's why i'm so appreciative of this forum to be able to talk a little bit more at length about it and then, certainly, to answer the questions. let me also mention the fact that donna ledger from the "usa today" is a person that has written extensively, also, about the drug problems in this country. and i know, as was mentioned in the introduction earlier, she is in boston right now with so many other jour
. that's already the case in about half the states. the state of missouri and the obama administration wanted a blanket rule allowing the blood tests without a warrant. thousands of people in southwestern pakistan were homeless today-- 24 hours after a powerful earthquake rocked neighboring iran. at least 700 homes in the mashkel area of baluchistan province were reduced to rubble. some 35 pakistanis were killed in the quake, and another 150 were injured. the pakistani army said it deployed several hundred soldiers to the quake zone to bring much-needed humanitarian relief. in the middle east, islamist militants fired at least two rockets from egypt's sinai peninsula into southern israel, adding to growing security concerns there. they targeted the resort town of eilat. but police officials said there were no casualties. meanwhile, palestinians in the west bank and gaza marked prisoner day, urging israel to release palestinian detainees. they waved flags and carried pictures of some of the 4,500 palestinians in custody. new zealand became the 13th country in the world today -- and the

house official says the obama administration has been briefed on the situation. they continue monitoring local and state response through the federal emergency management agency. in addition to tending to those who have been injured, officials are concerned about the possibility of a secondary explosion. a texas state official gave a briefing early this morning and said that, quote, there are still active ingredient there's. and that the fire continued to burn. with active ingredients, we can only assume he means dangerous chemicals that could lead to a secondary explosion. to the force of that blast. it was felt, reportedly, as far as 70 miles away. our own charles hadlock, was 60 miles away at the time. and he felt that explosion. and one official who got an opportunity to survey some of the damage said it was massive. the damage was massive. it looked just like iraq. and looked just like the oklahoma city bombing. that's how severe that damage was. again, residents have been told to evacuate from nearby areas. and those who are in the area who have not evacuated are being told to stay
is available to answer those questions. on the issue of the obama administration, during the 2008 campaign, president obama criticized the bush administration's treatment of detainees. candidate obama promised to close guantanamo and to reject torture without exception orie quive indication. he also criticized the previous administration for executive secrecy, included repeated invocation of the state's secret privilege to get civil lawsuits thrown out of court and the promise to lead a new era of openness. the administration has fulfilled some of those promises, and conspicuously failed to fulfill others. in some cases because congress has blocked them, but in other cases for reasons of their own. as asa mentioned earlier, high-level secrecy surrounding the rendition and torture of detainees since september 11 cannot continue to be justified on the basis of national security. the authorized enhanced techniques have been publicly disclosed and the c.i.a. has approved its former employee's publication of detailed accounts of individual interrogation. ongoing classification of material docum
've shied away from gun control. this is the first time the obama administration got into this legislative fight and maybe underestimated how difficult it would be to get congress to change. even in a body that is controlled by the democrats. there is a working majority in favor of gun control. >> do you think -- i heard the president specifically call for a more organized efrl on the other side of the issue. do you think that might be happening as well a little bit more? >> sure. you might see ofa, the group that wants to support the president. they might get more involved and democratic law makers want to do more. gun right supporters have a pretty big foothold inside the democratic party especially in the senate. senators in california, senators are a little different than have much more rural areas and push on the gun control issue. you look at the senators from alaska and montana and arkansas, north dakota yesterday that deserted the president on the gun control votes. those are not easy areas to sell as i was talking with somebody the other day. the idea of them coming out one week v
as secretary of state. i applaud the obama administration for ambitious negotiations on the important trade agreements you talked about -- the transatlantic trade and investment partnership, and the agreement with trading partners in asia. these negotiations hold a promise of boosting the u.s. economy with increased access to our largest markets, and stronger investments that would lead to more jobs. the economic potential is critical at a time when one in five jobs in our country are trade dependent. that trade is about more than tariffs. toope, we know, is critical help the united states with issues that cut across the foreign-policy perspective. asia is also key to several of our economic security interests, as you highlighted in your recent trip. it is critical we deepen economic ties to the ee you and but cannot lose sight of other critical missions, like turkey and russia. tackling some of our toughest geopolitical challenges will require a closer connection, i believe, to these nations. i praise you on your recent trip to turkey, where you have gotten turkey closer to resolving issue
to determine the exact cause of the fire. the obama administration is trying to figure out what if anything it can now do about gun control. the senate gutted legislation that would have approved background checks. four democrats joined republicans in blocking the bill, afterwards an infuriated president obama spoke and described it as a shameful day in washington. in boston today the fbi is considering a possible photo and video release of a person they believe is connected to the marathon bombings on monday. the video was taken by surveillance camera near a lord & taylor store. investigators are debating the benefits and drawbacks of releasing materials to the public. the death toll stands at three dead more than 150 injured. ten remain in critical condition, and media critics are hammering several news organization who wrongly reported that a suspect had been arrested. cnn in addition to the erroneous report that somebody had been arrested also got the man's skin color wrong. no explanation from cnn. stephanie? >> stephanie: david -- >> actually am i supposed to pit
confirmation, so i would think that the obama administration would be thanking the senate for its work to make it easier for any president to get confirmations, and in any event when we're talking about cabinet members, president obama is being better treated than the last three presidents. we are talking about circuit judges. he is better treated than george w. bush. when we're talking about district judges, he is treated a little worse in his first term than george w. bush, but we changed the rules to speed up district judges and the score in the second term, as i have said twice now, obama 13, bush 1, obama way ahead. i like to see confirmations move ahead. i hope i don't hear this much more when the record shows that in fact it's a manufactured crisis. i thank the president and i yield the the presiding officer: without objection. the question is on the torres nomination. all in favor say aye. those opposed, no. the ayes appear to have it. the ayes do have it. the nomination is confirmed. the question is on the watson nomination. is there a sufficient second? there is. the clerk will call
pelosi. and how much was passed and what was done. >> bill: in that first -- obama administration. do you see -- maybe a better chance because of the political political -- let's see realities facing the republican party? a better chance on immigration? >> well, i do think there is a better chance on immigration. i think at one point they have to decide which one are they going to do. i think when the republicans woke up the day after the election and realized latinos voted, i think that they -- >> bill: hello! did they ever! >> i think they had to come to grips with that reality. and so i think there is a better chance on immigration. we'll just have to wait and see. i sit on judiciary. i sat through, as a matter of fact, our first hearing was about immigration and it went on all day long. and what was very clear that day was that they could handle immigration reform up to citizenship. we will make you legal residents but we just can't go that far. i think donald trump was the one who told the truth. he went to the cpac conference. what did he say? he said 11 million democrats.

within these agencies, not a congress. under the obama administration, immigration agents can no longer arrest those who violate.s depression agents cannot arrest an individual for entering the united states illegally. we can arrest and individual who illegally overstays a visa. immigration agents are prohibited from enforcing law regarding fraudulent documents theft.ntifty agents are urged to apply the dream to adults inmates in jails and releasing adults back into the communities, criminals who have committed felonies, assault and our officers are and who prey on children. at the same time, ice officers are punished that trend by dhs and ice leadership, with a loss of their jobs, simply because they attempt to off enforce the law. and provide for public safety. since the gang of eight has chosen to ignore enforcement officei ha uld ke to ask them publicly. dick rubio, chuck schumer, durbin, john mccain, pat leahy, lindsay graham, robert menendez, jeff flake, michael beck, as united states senators, representatives of the people, where have you been for the last four years? what have y
review board. clearly even john kerry is not confident in the obama administration's versions of the verns -- events. kerry promised the committee that he would clear the air, in his words, though he also repeatedly used the phrase that clears the air needs to be done so we can move on to far more important issues. and i am so grateful to secretary kerry for taking that position. we do need to get to the truth. dead d at benghazi, the americans cry out for truth. hose who were harmed and hurt, americans there deserve the truth. opefully we will get that. mr. speaker, with so much suffering and anguish right now in america, it is still the greatest nation in the history of the world. and may god guide the leadership in this country, that we don't drop the ball and fail on our watch. that we show ourselves to be worthy recipients of the gifts of liberty given to us by prior nerations, all coming as the founders noted as a gift from god. ith that i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the chair will entertain a motion to adjourn
hospitals, and president obama has opinion notified. the administration is monitoring this situation via fema which is in contact with state and local officials in texas. here's waco police sergeant patrick swanson just a short time ago. >> there is a significant area around the fertilizer plant that has been destroyed. homes have been destroyed and there are homes flattened and part of that community is gone. >> nbc's charles hadlock is live in the small town of west, texas. charles, what are people saying so far? what's the latest? >> reporter: they say it's a very tedious process, but they are still holding out hope that they will find survivors in the rubble that is left in the northern part of west, texas. the plant itself is on the northeast corner of town, and it exploded last night after fire broke out about 7:30. about 7:45 the fire chief realized the fire was getting out of control. he order his men out, and seven minutes later the whole building exploded. jill jenkins was a triage nurse. she was one of the first ones to arrive on the scene. here's what she had to say. >> when
administration. he could pull it off. if obama nearly tried, it could produce a million jobs in the oil and gas industry. that's not even including the ancillary small businesses or the factory jobs that we moved here from other countries to benefit from our cheaper energy costs. but here's the rub. in order to achieve energy independence within president obama's time in office, the president would have to embrace natural gas as a surface fuel, the way they do in other countries with bountiful gas reserves. he has the ability to order government automobiles, trucks to convert to natural gas. that would then foster a huge job-creating infrastructure and make the importation of oil from diesel fuel oneua all our itsntan irrelevance. ver, ithe president did that h environmental base would be furious. so instead, he says, he favors all sorts of energy. hey, that's the same thing as doing nothing. he needs to say nat g our fuel. we're going to use it to clean up our skies and also become energy independent. sound impossible? listen. i'm not talking about giving this industry one red cent. unlike the
to the number originally planned during the bush administration with president obama. i have a question for you with the russian government consulted or informed that the united states was considering this decision before the decision was made and if so, when it that occur? >> well, the answer is not to my knowledge. it was not russian government was not consulted in any way. it was not decision that policy was not decided based on any consideration of the russian government. incidentally i would add that those gbi also not only really alaska but some are -- california. >> okay. to your knowledge they were not consulted. the department were to dpd that additional missile defense systems were needed, to be deployed domestically or abroad. would the russian government be informed before the decision was made? >> first, i can't answer for the president. will they include any of our nato allies as part of our discussion? >> again, senator, i don't know about those talks that would be in the per view of the secretary of state and the white house. i have not been consulted on on the possibility what
as some you might not expect. the white house report quoting an administration official said topics included the terrorist attack in boston, immigration reform, economy, and gun control. the dinner came hours after the senate dealt a stinging blow to obama's agending by rejecting a white house backed plan on background checks for gun sales. obama invited a dozen democratic senators to join him for an informal dinner after holding two similar meetings with separate groups of republican senators. senators dick durbin, dianne feinstein, ron wyden, jack reed, landrieu, jean shaheen, michael ben it, and chris coons were some of the democratic senators that attended. first call up during this segment of the "washington journal" comes from tony in mow desso -- modesto, california. hi. caller: i wanted to bring up the fact yesterday about obama was out there and democrats out there talked about how the n.r.a. lied and were calling people liars. what amazed me is they never talk about those, all these lies that had to do with obamacare. lie after lie after lie. that's all the democrats do is
